here's a side by side with my Ultratech. This is a large knife. I can't imagine actually carrying this thing other than in its sheath. As to the build of the knife, it's very nice. Very even grinds and very little blade play. Fires like stink. Great fit and finish. Love it. One thing I will say is that D/A OTFs are a lot funner to play with than S/A. Oh well.
